Free Skate For Gold slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Skate For Gold slot by Play'n Go is based presumably on a big star in US skateboarding, Nyjah Huston. Our background is a skateboarding circuit on a palm beach and we get hard rock as the soundtrack and the whoosh of wheel as we spin. Surprisingly, given the potential material available, sport themes aren't that common in slots! We have had Microgaming make several clones of the Cricket Star type of 243-ways slots including Basketball Star and Rugby Star but as said these are all the same game. Playtech have made several football games including the dreary and corny Football Fans slots, so will Nyjah also be putting the skate under our bankroll here?
On The Reels...
There are 10 set pay lines here on Skate For Gold slot with symbols single. Nyjah is the top 5-of-a-kind at 25x bet, with coloured action shots forming the medium pays with Yellow 20x, Green 15x, Blue or Purple 10x. The lower pays are the letters S-K-A-T-E paying 5 or 3x for a full line. There are single Wilds on the reels which pays 40x for a full line but Nyjah has a few trick moves to pull here!
Well I would call this feature 'Trick' in the singular. On any base game spin the Combo Meter can activate. This means one of the 4 medium pay action symbols is randomly selected as Nyjah spins over the grid on his skateboard. Should this selected trick symbol fall anywhere on the grid, you get 2 single Wilds spin in plus one expanding Wild in the form of a Skateboard. This expanding Wild may turn into a Golden Skateboard and offer up a 2-10x multiplier on top.
You now understand the significance of the letters S-K-A-T-E as you need these to appear in order in anywhere across the 5 reels to trigger 12 free games. During these games, the Combo Meter is always active but now there are 3 medium action shot symbols and you need to land them all anywhere on the grid in order from left to right to trigger the Wild event. This earns you 2 extra spins each time you achieve it and then the 3 Combo symbols will change. Play'n Go tell us the usual, i.e. 5000x is possible.
Skate For Gold slot is quite good fun if you overlook the extremely boring and irritating repetitive rock soundtrack. With a 96.21% RTP and good base game play, you too could have a rollercoaster ride here as I achieved all my biggest wins in this, rather than the free games! That said, they do have potential and aren't hard to trigger either. The graphics and animations aren't great at all but I'm sure Nyjah likes the plain street art look when all's said and done. If you want a few twists and turns for your money, get on board...
